AOP Squadron Memorial, Old Sarum Airfield, Wiltshire

This small memorial to the AOP (Air Observation Post) Squadrons may be found at the Old Sarum Airfield, close to the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection. I must admit I had to look up what an AOP was before I created this page, and having done so feel that this small memorial is really worthy of a much better understanding and exposure.

War Memorial in Salisbury, Wiltshire

The first time I saw this memorial in Salisbury Market Square was when I was visiting Salisbury, but I was unable to get any photographs of it due to construction work and a flea market that was on at the time. The next time I saw it the flea market got in the way, and the pics I then used were taken in the late afternoon with my phone. For some reason I am just not able to get decent images of this memorial! I will however try again as the construction that was going on at the square is finally finished. The building in the background is the Guildhall.
